Metric - Anticipate Lyrics



What did you plan?
What did you anticipate?
All you demand to find
Spiraling down, falling behind
No tomorrow
When you're ahead of your time
What did you want to know?
How does it end? How does it go?

From the bottom I fled
But the stars overhead
Let me wake from the ruin
I must say that I was a wreck

Hit the bottom I guess
But the words you once said
Let me wake from the ruin
Second sign up ahead

I couldn't withstand
I couldn't anticipate
How low I would go
What did I miss? I didn't know
I didn't know

Now what do you anticipate?
Another catastrophe
Coming around, following me

From the bottom I fled
But the stars overhead
Let me wake from the ruin
I must say that I was a wreck

Hit the bottom I guess
But the words you once said
Let me wake from the ruin
Second sign up ahead

    My favorite song from this album. Sounds like an 80's song that was created by an angel in outer space...with a new twist!

  16. Busy Bee Fitness Experts - Personal Trainer Toronto

    There are no words to describe how good this song and album is. Can't believe it bombed.

    CrashBandits

    The album has only been out two weeks and currently sits 19th on the billboard top 100 and 5th in Canada. Not sure why you think it has bombed.
